Australian Designers Create Braille Jewellery Line

Artist Andy Uprock used to roam the streets of Sydney, Australia putting up his poetry in Braille; in doing so, he created a form of graffiti for the blind. That is the inspiration behind his Braille jewellery collaboration with designers Milenka Osen and Georgie Swift of TMOD. 

Each piece is inscribed with Braille script of Uprock’s poetry, and while the idea is to inspire wearers through the written word, the Braille jewellery is also meant to encourage an experience through feeling and touch.

Aside from being one of the most interesting lines of jewellery to hit the market lately, a percentage of sales go towards Vision Australia, so you can feel good about indulging in the latest accessory trend.
